BEIJING, Aug. 23 (Xinhua) -- Rainstorms brought by Typhoon Trami swept southeast China's coastal provinces Zhejiang and Fujian, affecting 1.4 million people and forcing relocation of more than 351,000, the Ministry of Civil Affairs said Friday.

Trami made landfall in Fuqing City, Fujian Province earlyThursday morning and weakened to a tropical depression in neighboring Jiangxi Province.

Rain caused flooding in a number of counties in Zhejiang and Fujian, damaging houses and farmland.

Damage caused by Trami has led to direct economic loss of over 1 billion yuan, the ministry said.
